About Us

Meteotest has been working in the heart of Bern for 43 years.

Meteotest was founded in 1981 - the year IBM launched the personal computer. This milestone in computer science made it possible at all for a private company to develop and sell data driven services and products in the areas of weather, climate and the environment.

To this day, Meteotest has remained faithful to this digital business model: the collection, provision, analysis, presentation and interpretation of digital data continues to be our supply base. We are traditionally very familiar with Big Data and Data Science and today these skills are more relevant than ever.

Our team consists of 40 scientists, engineers and computer scientists. We process orders from private and public companies and institutions in Switzerland and abroad.

Our Vision

Meteotest is a leading company in weather, climate, environment and computer science. We are characterised by a high customer focus, expertise and technical competence.

Meteotest is an agile company: We develop our products and services along current trends and issues. Where we see a corresponding market potential, we grow organically.

Meteotest is an SME owned by its employees. We are an attractive employer – a high level of commitment on the part of all employees forms the basis for a trustful cooperation. Profits are invested in further developments and shared with employees and shareholders.


Our Corporate Principles


Financial and professional independence form the basis for acting as a neutral service provider. Strategic partnerships strengthen our position in the market.

Sustainable entrepreneurship

We live entrepreneurship – we are confident and pleased about our success stories. We consciously weigh up opportunities and risks and make profound business decisions.

The focus is on long-term success and continuity in the interest of our customers and employees. With entrepreneurial agility, we also recognize and realize short-term opportunities.

Customer benefit and added value

The needs of our customers are at the center of our actions. We offer expertise, quality, flexibility and pragmatism and thus add value for each of our customers. This individual customer benefit is reflected in a corresponding price, which we stand in for.

Our transparent way of working is the basis for a close relationship of trust with our customers. We take criticism seriously and are answerable for mistakes.

Innovation and efficiency

Our services and products are modern and innovative. We are technically and professionally up to date, always curious and we enjoy challenges. Likewise, we focus on continuity and optimization through sustainable and efficient solutions.

Individuality and team spirit

Our employees are the most important assets of the company. Meteotest encourages and also demands individual responsibility, addresses the needs of employees and offers a flexible working time model.

We attach great importance to good and binding communications, trust and a team-oriented working atmosphere with an open error culture.

Lean organization

Our organizational structure is transparent and adaptable. The flat hierarchy creates short decision paths and high flexibility. Our internal processes are efficient and reliable. We stay agile and question ourselves critically again and again.

Environmental awareness

We regard the world as a loan from our children. The preservation of a liveable environment and a sustainable use of natural resources are a matter of course for us.

Green Engagement

  • Meteotest has been environmentally committed since its foundation. In 1992, for example, we built one of the first wind turbines in Switzerland.
  • Today, we produce almost half of our electricity consumption with the 17 kWp photovoltaic system installed on the Meteotest building. We cover the rest of our electricity requirements with Swiss electricity from hydropower, biomass and solar energy.
  • We heat with CO2 neutral district heating from waste and wood and reduce our heating requirements by utilising the waste heat from our server room.
  • "Green IT": We save electricity by virtualising our internal servers and using semi-passive cooling. Our web servers are located in data centres that are powered by 100% renewable energy.
  • Wherever possible, we use public transport for business trips. We largely offset the CO2 emissions of our measurement vehicle, our company car and our flights with certificates.
  • Meteotest is a member of the business initiative AEE Suisse Bern, which is committed to renewable energies and energy efficiency. The company is pleased that all employees help to support these basic ecological ideas. Over 90% of journeys to work are made on foot, by bike or by public transport.
